SupThin’s offering is a very simple bumper that adds color to the outer sides of the case and phone, including black, mint, and rose pink. To prepare itself for any drops it may face, the four corners are air cushioned to handle falls better, while the clear back can deal with any minor/insignificant scratches. It’s thin, lightweight, and has all the cutouts you need to get to your ports, buttons and other functions.
If the resulting shock from a fall is what concerns you the most when it comes to potential phone damage, Spigen’s Rugged Armor will ease your worries. Their case’s main benefit is shock absorption, and it does so using flexible TPU, an interior spiderweb pattern, and cushioned corners around the phone. Its military-grade certification means it is also capable of dealing with a bit of dust and water, and its glossy finish with carbon fiber textures ensures your phone is nice and comfortable to hold. If you’re not constantly in dangerous environments, or regularly fumbling your phone, Spigen’s case is a sure way to go.
IVSO’s case is good for people that don’t drop their devices very often, but want decent protection from other elements, such as dust, fingerprint smudges, and scratches. This soft TPU case manages to defend against those, to the point that it’s even easy to clean, but that isn’t to say it doesn’t provide minor benefits when it comes to impacts with hard surfaces. Don’t expect much additional grip, but instead a grip that’s more comfortable than before you had a case, which is never a bad thing to have.
For a slim, snug fitting case that all about protecting the body of your ZTE Axon 7, look no further than this dual layer case from MicroP. It comes it two pieces that come together to form the case: a hard polycarbonate outer layer and an inner TPU layer. Combined, the two will protect your phone from sudden shocks and heavy impacts, as well as keep it propped up using the kickstand found on the back. The camera, various ports, buttons, and fingerprint scanner are all accessible, and while the buttons are exposed, the case extends outward just enough to keep them from being broken or dented during a fall.
Another slim case to consider outfitting your phone with, Olixar’s FlexiShield is, as its name implies, pretty flexible. While it is thin and specifically made to fit the profile of the Axon 7, it won’t be a hassle to apply and remove, in the event you want to clean any unsightly debris. Being tailor made for this phone also means the cutouts for all of its outer features and functions will be precise, leaving little to no room for gaps or third-party accessories that have slightly wider cables or plugs. This includes the raised bezels that keep the Axon 7’s display far enough away from any flat surface when face down. FlexiShield cases are made for long term use, so provided nothing to drastic happen to it or your phone, you should be able to keep it on for a while.
